Newly Released Ghislaine Docs Put Bill Clinton at Epstein’s Orgy Island

(Headline USA) Newly unsealed court documents provide a fresh glimpse into a fierce civil court fight between Jeffrey Epstein‘s ex-girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, and one of the women who accused the couple of sexual abuse.

The documents released Thursday were from a now-settled defamation lawsuit filed by one of Epstein’s alleged victims, Virginia Roberts Giuffre. One of the documents transcribes a discussion from almost 10 years ago between Giuffre and her lawyer, in which she states that former President Bill Clinton visited the island, according to Fox News.

Fox News reports:

AT ONE POINT IN THE CONVERSATION, THE SUBJECT TURNED TO EPSTEIN’S POWERFUL FRIENDS. JACK SCAROLA, ONE OF GIUFFRE’S LAWYERS, ASKED HER IF SHE HAD ANY RECOLLECTION OF EPSTEIN TELLING HER THAT BILL CLINTON OWED HIM “FAVORS.”

“YES I DO,” SHE RESPONDED, ACCORDING TO THE DOCUMENTS. “IT WAS A LAUGH, THOUGH. HE WOULD LAUGH IT OFF. YOU KNOW, I REMEMBER ASKING JEFFREY [A] ‘WHAT’S BILL CLINTON DOING HERE?’ KIND OF THING, AND HE LAUGHED IT OFF AND SAID, ‘WELL, HE OWES ME A FAVOR.’ HE NEVER TOLD ME WHAT FAVORS THEY WERE. I NEVER KNEW. I DIDN’T KNOW IF HE WAS SERIOUS. IT WAS JUST A JOKE.”

THE LAWYER ASKED HER TO CLARIFY WHAT SHE WAS REFERRING TO WHEN SHE MENTIONED CLINTON, AND SHE SAID THE FORMER PRESIDENT WAS ON THE ISLAND. SHE SAID MAXWELL WAS ALSO THERE, AS WELL AS A PERSON NAMED “EMMY” AND TWO YOUNG GIRLS.

“AND WERE ALL OF YOU STAYING AT JEFFREY’S HOUSE ON THE ISLAND, INCLUDING BILL CLINTON?” SCAROLA ASKED.

“THAT’S CORRECT,” SHE RESPONDED. “HE HAD ABOUT FOUR OR FIVE DIFFERENT VILLAS ON HIS ISLAND SEPARATE FROM THE MAIN HOUSE, AND WE STAYED IN THE VILLAS.”

Giuffre claimed in the suit and other litigation that Maxwell recruited her in 2000 to be a sexual servant to Epstein. She said the couple subsequently pressured her into having sex with numerous rich or notable men, including Britain’s Prince Andrew, U.S. politicians, wealthy entrepreneurs, a famous scientist and fashion designer.

Maxwell, and all of the accused men, have denied those allegations for years. Giuffre has never accused Clinton of behaving inappropriately, and a spokeswoman for the former president has denied he ever visited there.

Among the newly released documents were emails Maxwell and Epstein exchanged in January 2015, when Giuffre’s allegations were getting a new round of media attention.

One email, sent from Epstein’s email address but written in Maxwell’s voice, appeared to be a draft a statement or set of talking points for Maxwell to use in defending herself. It said she had been the target of “false allegations of impropriety and offensive behavior that I abhor and have never ever been party to.”

Responding to a Maxwell email a few days later, Epstein wrote: “You have done nothing wrong and I (would) urge you to start acting like it.” He suggested she go outside and hold her head high, “not as an (escaping) convict.”

Epstein allegedly killed himself last summer while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges. Maxwell was recently arrested on federal charges that she recruited at least three girls, including one as young as 14, for Epstein to sexually abuse in the 1990s. Prosecutors said she also joined in the abuse.

Maxwell is jailed awaiting trial in New York.

Many of the documents unsealed by the court Thursday had been available publicly before.

They included a deposition in which Giuffre described the alleged abuse, and also answered questions about errors she’d made previously in telling her story, including originally telling a court she was 15 when she met Epstein, when records showed she was at least a year older.

Giuffre over the years has told her story to the FBI, but no charges were brought based on her allegations and she is not one of the three alleged victims in the current criminal case against Maxwell.

Two documents that were not released as scheduled Thursday were depositions Maxwell gave in the civil lawsuit in 2016.

U.S. District Judge Loretta A. Preska had ordered them released, but Maxwell’s lawyers appealed her ruling to the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Her lawyers said they should be blocked since she now faces criminal charges.
